in 2012 with funding from
Federally funded with LSTA funds through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners
We, the Seniors of 1963, have selected "Musket" as our theme and
shall pass it on to all future Senior classes of Southbridge High School.
We believe that the Musket is a symbol of the leadership, the courage,
and the forbearance of the Pioneers. We hope that by setting such
high ideals for ourselves and for our fellow students we will be able
to live up to them together.
Dark Blue and White
Finis coronat opus
We, the class of 1963, express our sincere gratitude in dedicating
our yearbook, the MUSKET, to our class advisors, Mr. Joseph Jordan
and Mr. Donald Bernard.
Through their unfailing interest, guidance, and encouragement, we
have been able to carry on many successful functions throughout
our high school years.
We hope, therefore, that this dedication will help to express in part
our deep appreciation for all they have done.

Sandra Wielblad — Chairman
OF THE CLASS OF 1 963
One of our local reporters, Roger Fournier, has just
noted the amazing coincidence in this report of 1980
that the entire Class of 1963 is staying at the new
Southbridge Hilton Hotel. Some are attending conven-
tions, some are vacationing, and some are employed
at the hotel.
Irresistibly drawn to the hotel, we are greeted by "Ro-
bot" Szczygiel, the august doorman, then Diane Robert,
the hotel receptionist. In the foyer, we are delighted
to find a portrait of James Buck.nam, president of Ford
Motor Company. The painting was the joint effort of
Sylvia Kopas and Carol Postemski.
The illuminated bulletin board advises us of numerous
conventions at the hotel. The Blue Room houses a teach-
ers' convention. The elected president, Marcia Dion,
home from Europe, called the meeting to chaotic
order when with the gavel she smashed the finger of
Kathy Ryan the new senior English Teacher at SHS.
Gloria Thanas ran to get Young Dr. Moloney and Dr.
Jeff Kokoszka, who arrived with their nurses, Norma
DiLorenzo and Diane Lacasse. They were followed by
X-Ray technician Jane Bachand whose machine was
carried by Sam Ricci and David Tully. Bruce Guilbault,
SHS Problems of Democracy teacher, called an ambu-
lance driven by Tony Trifone and designed by Henry
When the ambulance arrived, a riot broke out. Three
state policemen, Ronald Berthiaume, Robert Langevin,
and Norman Vallee, rushed to the scene to try to quell
the mob. Mike Daniels from California and Eddie Brous-
seau, instructor of N.R.O.T.C. at Providence College,
successfully assisted their fellow teacher into the ambu-
lance in spite of the riot.
During the course of the riot, Lionel Hebert's candy
stand was overturned by Paul LaFleche. Sandra Wiel-
blad estimated that the 5896/ 2 pieces of candy scat-
tered, if divided proportionally among the rioters, would
give each one exactly 22-1/17 pieces. Government
pharmacist Richard Belanger handed out tranquillizers,
developed by noted research biologist Pat Szydlik, to
calm the crowd. After the riot broke up, elementary
school teachers, Marcia Grandone and Peggy Apte,
served coffee and dirty candy to the exhausted police-
When all was calm, Dell Foss spoke on teaching handi-
capped children, followed by Sue Schauweker's address
to elementary school teachers. The speeches were judged
by Harvard professor Roger Reopel, Vassar dean Janina
Swiacki, and history professor at Radcliffe (Room 112)
In the President Grant dining room an engineers' con-
vention had just adjourned and the engineers were
milling around their genial host, Gary Karp. Joan Sil-
vestri and her exotic South Sea Islanders entertained
with the limbo. Famous members of the troop are Sandy
Yannacci and George Fournier.
Standing in the corner discussing their trans-Atlantic
bridge were Paul Racicot and Paul Remijan while their
secretaries, Karen Saletnik and Maxine Tetreault, took
notes. These four were formulating plans for greater
things in the future.
During the course of the social hour a fuse blew, and
electrical engineers Dave Byman and John Walkinshaw
were called out to solve the problem. Louis Berthiaume
and Edwin Lach were sent to get a fuse. When the
lights came back on, secretary Delvina French reported
that her employer Peter Slack, of Super Slack's Engineer-
ing Company, was missing. Hotel secretary Yvonne
Salisbury called F. B. I. agent incognito Mex Veshia to
investigate. House detective Dave Diamond came out of
Pat Boucher's gym class to assist.
Within minutes, Roland Belanger, while checking out
his CD fallout shelter, discovered Peter investigating it
with Dave DiGregorio, civil engineer, and John Hill,
designer of the shelter, together with their secretaries,
Nancy De Angelis, Sheila Galligan and Franny Libuda.
They were soon all returned to the convention.
Leaving the party, we passed Stanley Szydlik petitioning
funds for his first manned flight to Pluto. Further down
the hall was Libby Hall doing hand-stands while her en-
thusiastic students, Ralph Belanger and Dennis Leo,
literally knocked themselves out doing head stands.
While doing a back flip, Fred Sczypien knocked over a
table holding both a novel written by Peggy DeAngelis
and the Nobel prize-winning essay of Donna Hughes.
Before entering the diplomatic suite, we passed a group
of stewardesses, Gale Richardson, Sally Spielman, and
Gloria Yanka. Having completed a trip around the
world recently, they have just had their hair done at
the international beauty salon of Barbara Butler and
In the diplomatic suite Frannie Holden, recently returned
from Madrid, was discussing improving U.S. Spanish
relations with his secretary Sue Lango. Connie Thomas,
ambassador to the Philippine Islands, had just fainted.
Dr. Richard Spielvogel, surgeon general for the U.S.
Government, revived her, aided by his nurses, Carolyn
Englehardt and Barbara Glass.
Linda Miscook was also at the convention, resting from
her position as ambassador to Italy. Top nuclear phys-
icist Jack Tardif discussed missile developments with
Air Force General Ken Carpenter, here from Paris, and
Private Steve Pontbriand. Major Billy Lapointe and
Colonel Bill Lariviere have left the group in favor of pas-
Barbara Mathieu, top retail buyer at Macy's, rushed
into the room searching for one of her original dresses.
Downstairs in the hotel clinic, oral cancer vaccine was
being passed out. The vaccine was developed by George
Carmel, reknowned veterinarian, who discovered it
while experimenting with the blood of a flea. Member
of the Peace Corps, Colleen Moore, found that the vac-
cine is successful in her work. Nurses Diane Morrill and
Carol St. Martin were handing out the vaccine to volun-
teers Billy Ryan, Fran Allard, and Roger Julian, who
plan to use it as propaganda in their business relations.
Medical Secretaries Gail Apostola and Carol Burzycki
recorded necessary data. Joyce Greene, secretary to a
famous cartoonist, at first refused to take the vaccine
until persuaded by the well-known psychologist, Connie
Cronin. Carolyn Mongeon, social worker, went through
Joyce's records and discovered that her abnormally
healthy school days were the cause of a mental block.
Interrupting their social activities, the profitable law firm
of VanDernoot and Hurley were in the process of
counseling Gordon Muldoon who was in an accident
while touring the country in his Corvette. Gordon is
suing Sandra O'Brien for the damage done to his car
by her twelve Swedish children. Taking notes were
Pauline Giroux, Diane Latendress, Audrey Yanka, and
Ida Provost, specialist in law.
On the bulletin board in the lobby, designed by Randy
McClam, various items are posted. Bruce Giovanello
has just been appointed head coach of the Boston
Patriots, Stuart Dall has been elected president of the
O.A. by the Board of Trustees. The Board consists of
Bernie Mahan, Frank Piccionni, Doug Blackmer, and
Roland Corriveau. Stuart's receptionist will be Connie
Ronald Lomme has just opened a new branch office of
his Real Estate business. Head accountant will be Leo
Mandeville, and head bookkeeper will be Janet Mac-
Donald. In his other office, he employs Diane Nolan and
Peggy Julian as secretaries.
George Graham has made history by developing a

A MAN PREPARED
HAS FOUGHT HALF THE BATTLE
The above quotation is as fresh and
true as it was when wise old Cer-
vantes—author of Don Quixote— wrote
it over 300 years ago. Study and prep-
aration for the future have always
paid dividends in later years.
The academic training you now re-
ceive is your preparation for coming
battles. Such weapons as English,
mathematics, and science will be used
constantly to accumulate greater
knowledge, to acquire new skills, to
earn a living. Much of your success in
later life will depend upon how thor-
oughly you master your present
A successful business, too, must pre-
pare itself for whatever changes the
future may bring. Here at American
Optical Company we constantly study
and search for new materials, new de-
signs, new techniques. Through day-
to-day learning and new ideas we
have kept abreast or ahead of the
times in our field.
Our very best wishes go with you
who are about to assume you new
duties and obligations in life. It is
our sincere hope that the future years
may hold for you a brimming measure
of health and happiness.
